My Top 20 Childhood TV Show Opening Themes (Part 2)

TV shows were much more awesome back when I was a kid. Last time I started a post that had my top 20 TV show openings from my childhood. I had shared the list from 20 to 11. Here is the second part which has my top 10 openings.

Which ones were your favorites from part 1? Now, let’s get to the list:

10 – Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers: I was only able to watch this via VHS rental shops. More robot horses! The theme song was pretty catchy in that I still hear it in my head every now and then.

9 – Ghostbusters: Who’re you going to call? Ask anyone and they should have heard of this song. The lyrics are spot on and it reminded me back then not to be afraid of ghosts as a kid. And guys, it's Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Not Stay tuff, not stay tough, not state puff. It's Stay Puft!

8 – WildC.A.T.S.: This song is just cool. Same with the X-men theme song, this was the point in my life where I was collecting a lot of comic books and seeing the WildC.A.T.S come to life was really a joy.

7 – GI Joe: Yo Joe! This made me want to become a better person as a kid just by listening to the theme. Back when everything from USA was  just awesome, GI Joe was one of those things.

6 – Iron Man: This was the first time I saw Iron Man, and it was good. The show would only run for a few minutes (since it was from the 1960s) then this theme would play again and again each time the next part of the show was going to continue. Shows like this taught me like how awesome the Mandarin is (still pretty bummed out about how 2013 Mandarin turned out). There were other cartoons that came out together with this at 4pm every day after the 700 club and before the soap opera, Agila. (Hulk on Mondays, Thor on Tuesdays, Submariner on Wednesdays, Captain America on Thursdays and Iron Man on Fridays)

5 – Transformers: I have countless times tried to reenact the intro scene using toys. Imaginary toys though since I never had any from the intro. The one I have (Devastator) is awesome though.

4 – TMNT: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles… anyone from the 80s who doesn’t know this song needs to be brought into a dark room and whipped while watching this the whole day.

3 – Ducktales: This opening theme just makes me happy. It’s fun and catchy to listen to. The game that came out for this for the family computer was also really good and I am super stoked that they’re coming out with a reboot for current generation consoles. Ducktales wooh!

2 – Daimos: This was one of the Japanese songs that I learned how to sing without understanding what the heck it was saying. It was always awesome watching the Transer transform into Daimos.

1 – Batman the Animated series: Nothing beats Batman. Nothing. There have been a lot of animated Batman shows but this one’s the best. The opening tells everything about who Batman is all about. On a side note, Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamil (Joker) has the best rendition of their respective characters in this cartoon.

So there you have it. 20 of the most awesome TV show openings from my childhood. Which were your favorites? Did I miss any important shows?
